demonstrate a willingness to pay for our national defense, rather than put it on the credit bar? mr. speaker, let's get on with the big national debate and finally focus on jobs and getting the economy going as we reduce our long-term deficit. thank you, mr. speaker. with that, i reserve the balance of my time. >> the jaume and from wisconsin. -- the gentleman from wisconsin. the gentleman from wisconsin reserves the balance of this time. the gentleman from maryland. >> i yield one minute to the gentle lady from wisconsin. >> thank you so much for yielding. so many of my colleagues have said that it was necessary to storm the white house and take the country hostage in the name of their grandchildren. i wanted to go on record talking about what i want from my grandchildren. i want head starts for my grandchildren. i want to early childhood education. i want my kids to go to a school where they can participate in the science fair. i want immunizations for them. i want research done for food safety to make sure this chicken nuggets are safe. i want clean air and clean water for them. i want jo
. that is distinct from darpa where the department of defense has incentives more in line to adopt things that allow them to fight wars more easily into reconnaissance better. it is a clear path way to adoption. in many ways, it operates for superintendents are awarded not because they did or did not help students. >> it strikes me that what it is doing as much more neatly aligned them world language instruction and or six instruction or liberal arts at a higher level. it strikes me if you are to bring a fourth or fifth grader, you are only to bring them a small portion. one question for me is if we are focusing on the kinds of outcomes, how good a metric is that for capturing the value that you are adding or do we need to think differently about what we are measuring and the metrics to see whether you guys are serving kids well or not? >> i think the metric is important for a couple of reasons. we are normally tutoring for about 40 hours. >> 40 hours a week? >> 40 hours during the course of an academic year. we are targeted in our instructions. if they go through and identify 12 areas we need to wo
have a devastating affect on national security. it would dramatically undercut our defense. some of the programs are the great investment programs of the future. energy, etc.. i really hope congress will redeem our homes by dealing with the entitlement reform. the center of local, and i in june introduced a proposal that would take steps to save medicare for the almost 70 million people who will be on medicare in one decade. and reduce the enormous costs of places on our task there. people think the payroll reductions and the premiums they pay pay the total benefits of medicare. it is not so. the average in our lifetime takes $3 out of the system for every dollar they put in. you just cannot run a program long term like that. who picks up the rest? the taxpayers. it is a big part of why we are getting into a deficit. you cannot save medicare by leaving it as it is. you can only save medicare, and i want to, i believe in the program. the senator and i put in a plan that would save over $600 billion in medicare costs over the next dent it -- over the next decade, and reduce medicar
for years and george h. w. bush wanted him to be secretary of defense in 1989 but his personal life was scrutinized and he was accused of womanizing, alcohol abuse, so the senate rejected him 53-47. he had been a long-time respected senator, all the factors that i mentioned creator problem of turned down by qualified people. presidents don't usually do this, but they're people go out and ask somebody, what would you say if the president wanted to nominate you for a position? some people say that they just don't want to go through the process. they cite family concerns and so forth because the press digs up dirt from your past, hostile senate hearings, embarrassing questions, and all of this for moving a family to washington for a few years at probably a lower salary than the one you are getting now. the problem of turned out is a real one and i have asked for critters about them, nobody wanted to say, i remember a bunch of people turned down an offer to be secretary. people don't want to hear that, but they tell me that it is a factor. as a consequence of all these factors, there ar
the defense of marriage act and i think the first would be a very solid foundation for a supreme court ruling. it will issue some kind of result next june. the final question is the pairing question, the proposition a question. does the u.s. constitution requires states to recognize same-sex marriages? mclean suggested and i argued in 1996 that the constitution as a matter of principle does prohibit such discrimination. the question is not as the constitution prohibit it? i think that is the right answer and i believe that is the answer people will have to reach as a society at some point. the real question is, do we want the u.s. supreme court to reach that result in 2013 by taking review and ruling as broadly as judge walker ruled, or do we want the supreme court to rule more narrowly? or perhaps the best result is for the supreme court to deny the review and send it back to have the ninth circuit reaffirm its and have same-sex marriage licenses start issuing in california again. this is an issue whose outcome is inevitable, but it is not inevitable that the answer will be delivered in 2013
